Tuesday, 6th March

45 years ago a plane from Bristol crashed in mountains as it came in to land at Basle during a snowstorm. Nearly 140 people, mainly mothers from Somerset, were on Invicta Airlines Flight 435 on a day out to go shopping and sightseeing.

Aftermath investigates how communities, like those in North Somerset, face and cope with such sudden and devastating disasters.
Some of those in Wrington who lost loved ones talk about their feelings then and now, ensuring this awful moment in Wrington’s history will never be forgotten.

From: Sarah Mountford, Volunteer Coordinator, GROWING SUPPORT

I work for a local organisation, Growing Support, that goes into care homes and runs gardening sessions, benefitting residents to connect with their community. We are currently recruiting new volunteers, particularly in North Somerset as we work with two homes in Weston-super-Mare who would really benefit from having the support of a volunteer in our sessions.

Would you be able to share this opportunity with your community? Let me know if you'd like any further information, on
07419 825 261 or < www.growingsupport.co.uk>
Please note I work part-time on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.

Message from North Somerset Council Consultations


Following the consultation on the Local Plan pre-commencement document in June 2016, North Somerset Council is now conducting the first stage of consultation on the emerging Local Plan 2036. This consultation is called “Generating Ideas” and is focussing on the proposed Strategic Development Locations identified in the Joint Spatial Plan at Banwell, Churchill, Backwell and Nailsea.

These proposed new communities in North Somerset will help deliver the housing, jobs and infrastructure we need to 2036. The Joint Spatial Plan (JSP) will set out the overall amount of new homes and business development and where it should be located across the West of England area, as well as the important schools, transport, community facilities and green spaces needed to support that growth. A further round of consultation is about to commence on the JSP and more details can be found at <www.jointplanningwofe.org.uk>

If the locations for these new communities are confirmed then the new North Somerset Local Plan will need to set out the proposals in more detail. The existing timeframe for current planning documents in North Somerset is to 2026. The new Local Plan will provide detailed policies and additional housing, employment and other land allocations beyond 2026 up to 2036.

It will review and roll-forward policies and allocations in existing development plan documents and plan for the housing, jobs and infrastructure set out in the Joint Spatial Plan.

This consultation is focussed on the key development areas, to engage with local communities about the form the new development should take. Your views will help to develop different options for development. We will carry out further consultations next year setting out these options before publishing our preferred plan. You can follow progress on our website: www.n-somerset.gov.uk/localplan2036>. The consultation will run from 22 November 2017 until 10 January 2018. The easiest way to comment is via our ONLINE consultation system.

Alternatively you can respond by post or e-mail:
